CS5.5.2 - sound clip silent after audio gain adjustment

Aug 9, 2012 4:26 PM

Seem to be having bad luck with Premiere recently. Now the latest hassle is that when I change the gain on an audio clip, and go to play it back, there's no sound coming from it. I just cleaned the cache today. any tips appreciated.

 

EDIT: seems like randomly the program wont play sound from any clip now either...

    Please tell us about the offending Audio Clips.

     

    Also, can you list your Audio & Audio Hardware settings, including the ASIO settings?

     

    Good luck,

    Don't have any other audio sources running at the same time as PP.  Shut down both, then restart PP alone.

    That would have been my next suggestion.

    Glad that you found the cause of the problem.

     

    Regarding the Waveform Display, though you adjust the Gain, the Waveform will not change. It is "baked into" the PEK file, generated, when you Import the file.

     

    Good luck,

    Interesting.

     

    Unless we are talking about different things, this entry from Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Classroom in a Book, Adobe Press, pretty much covers it:

     

    "Waveforms are immutable

     

    Adding an effect to a clip in Adobe Premiere Pro will not affect the original audio or video clip or the visible audio waveform. If you change the clip's volume or apply audio effects to it, the waveform will always display the clips's original volume levels."

    [p 225]

     

    Now, if the PEK file (Waveform Display) has been changed in CS 6, then I stand corrected, and that would be a nice addition.

     

    Good luck,

    It's been like this for a while now Bill, since at least CS4.  When you adjust the clip's gain, the waveform display changes to reflect the change in volume.

    You are correct - my confusion on Gain vs Volume. As I almost never use Gain, but instead either Clip Keyframes, or Track Keyframes on Volume.

     

    My bad,
